|Sadayatana 099: Absence Of Darkness - John Tocher|
A shadow may be infinitely dark, and also of infinite degrees of absence of darkness. The beginnings and ends of shadow lie between the light and darkness and may be infinitely diminished and infinitely increased. Shadow is the means by which bodies display their form. The forms of bodies could not be understood in detail but for shadow. - Leonardo da Vinci, The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci III startartisttitle00:00Grove Of WhispersLive Electro-Music.com Autumn 2012-09-2259:33Digital MassCold...

|Sadayatana 085: Control A Dream - John Tocher|
I believe that the truth of the matter is far more terrifying, that the real truth that dare not speak itself is that no one is in control, absolutely no one. This stuff is ruled by the equations of dynamics and chaos. There may be entities seeking control, but to seek control is to take enormous aggravation upon yourself. It's like trying to control a dream. - Terence McKenna, Dreaming Awake at the End of Time (1998) startartisttitle00:00OmbientLive on Sadayatana59:19Bing SatellitesLoop 962:15...

|Sadayatana 079: The Silence - John Tocher|
Some good Houston noise from Infant Mortality Rate, released through Brownian Motion. Cool tracks from Trust.Falls, from their release "The Road To Pinewood". This is a nice fun dark album with some cool samples. I bitched about it being released "all rights reserved" and they changed it to creative commons. I'm glad they did. Thank you. Some of the new release from Impulsive Habitat "Mecha / Orga" is featured...

|Sadayatana 080: Dead Machines - John Tocher|
A mix of field recordings from my porch and in front of my house, rain and cicadas and drones. Some experimental music, some noise. Was a strange show. I had to go where the sound led me. Thank you to Mystified for creating his "Polka Drones". I had challenged him as kind of a dare over Jack Hertz kidding me about the 78s I play at the end of my show (as if polka music could be a bad thing.) Mystified pulled through admirably...

|Sadayatana 155: The Early Days - John Tocher|
Only the silent, sleepy, staring houses in the backwoods can tell all that has lain hidden since the early days; and they are not communicative, being loath to shake off the drowsiness which helps them forget. Sometimes one feels that it would be merciful to tear down these houses, for they must often dream. - H. P.

|Sadayatana 093: Ruled By Fictions - John Tocher|
We live in a world ruled by fictions of every kind — mass merchandising, advertising, politics conducted as a branch of advertising, the instant translation of science and technology into popular imagery, the increasing blurring and intermingling of identities within the realm of consumer goods, the preempting of any free or original imaginative response to experience by the television screen. We live inside an enormous novel...

|Sadayatana 063: Smooth Road - John Tocher|
At some point after moving out to Houston I heard about a genre of music called "Chopped and Screwed". I always try to burrow into whatever local scene exists. If there is not support for the local scene there is no music scene.... Ya anyway, looking forward to my first taste of "Chopped and Screwed", when I finally heard some I was sorely disappointed. It's music that sounds like you're overdosing on cough medicine ya see...

|Sadayatana 032: My Grandparents House - John Tocher|
Opened and closed the show with some 78 rpm recordings from archive.org. Vera Lynn's version of "I'm in the Mood for Love". I wanted a dirty scratchy record. Instead it had been processed to reduce the noise. So hey! I added my own noise. And then Lizzie Miles gives us "Cotton Belt Blues" to close out the show. Yea I know it's not ambient music. If I could explain why this works I would be a writer instead of dj'ing this show...

|Sadayatana 088: Bizarre And Flawed - John Tocher|
I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you...
